2. Make Dressing: Grate zest from lemon. Cut lemon in half and squeeze juice from one half (use the other half to add some zing to your fizzy water). Combine lemon juice, lemon zest, dill, garlic, 1 teaspoon olive oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a medium bowl.

5. Make Salad: Add tomatoes, olives, bell pepper, spinach and onion to vinaigrette, tossing to coat.

To Serve: Divide chicken and salad between 2 serving plates.

Pro Tip:

To ensure that the spinach is well coated, let the salad stand after tossing really well. Or, add 1 tablespoon warm water to the vinaigrette.

Spice it Up!: Add some heat to the vinaigrette by stirring in a pinch of cayenne pepper.
